Talking Does keyword in domain boost ranking?

I've a website kabul.dubaiposter.com/vehicles so what you people think does a keyword such as "kabul" in my domain helps boost the site in Google?

I think it does, i mean, Im not an expert but every keyword helps google to segment the content, so i guess it does with your example too.

What helps is quality backlinks. It' just just the perfect domain that is the silver bullet to success.

This a good write up on domains. https://moz.com/learn/seo/domain

It does help but my take is that it's a hit and miss because many times I have seen EMD's to falter due to the Google update but I might be wrong.

Keyword based domain facilitates the ranking of the site in the search results, however, it does not guarantee you top position in the searches. It is the Domain Authority that plays a major role in improving the ranking of the site in the search results. High-quality content, branding, unique domain name, backlinks and readers' loyalty are much more important than the keyword-based domain name.

Actually DA is also nothing, it's just a term invented by Moz for the authority of a domain nothing else. Best bet would be to check the domain history while getting a backlink from the property.

If backlinks are important for ranking a site then how could we ignore DA which is primarily based on backlinks. Domain age is also a contributing factor. Check out why DA is important and how can you improve it https://www.quicksprout.com/2014/05/...ain-authority/

Yes it helps for ranking, But before considering your domain Google bots checks the competitors of that keyboards and the website which haves quality backlinks for that keyword. Then higher the keyword presence for a website in webs better the ranking.

I don't think that only keeping keyword rich domain will help to rank your website. There are many other factors that builds your high ranking. Well its depend on you to choose your domain that help others.

Definitely it could boost your ranking. Assuming you have fewer links than your competitors in your niche "flowers delivery" based in mexico. If you have a domain name flowerdeliverymexico dot com that one definitely gonna help you. But, again you can't escape building backlinks irrespective of how strong your domain name is.

Good Luck!

The word kabul is not a "domain" but "subdomain" in the given URL kabul dot dubaiposter dot com

Does it help in Google Ranking? The answer is Yes and No.

Why Yes? because if someone particularly types the word Kabul in the search query then there are chances that your site may show up in search results. For examples:- taxi service in kabul

Why No? because if someone does not type Kabul in the search query then your site may not show up in the search results. For example: taxi service

It nowhere means that you should not have such name. Infact it is preferable to have such subdomain but the best way is to get your site listed in local business directories & other local websites of Kabul (to get the backlinks from relevant sites).

Let me know if have any doubt or query.

If you want to post quality content then write a good content, give quality backlink follow the SEO yoast suggestion. Keyword on the URL really help you to boost in SEO but Backlink with anchor text plays major roll
